Will Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” Be 2013’s Song Of The Summer?

By now, we’re all familiar with the general narrative: Formerly a Disney Queen (thanks to a little ol’ show called Hannah Montana), Miley Cyrus eventually outgrew her cage kept locked away inside the Magic Kingdom castle, outstretched her wings and made her great escape with an electro-pop declaration of independence in 2010: “Can’t Be Tamed”.

It’s a very special week of meditating on the songs of summer, while each of our editors pick one of their favorite sunshine-dominating radio tracks and predict whether it will do for 2013 what Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe” did for 2012. (My personal song of the summer was obviously Mariah Carey‘s “Triumphant (Get ‘Em),”…

Will Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” Be 2013’s Song Of The Summer?

If someone had told me in January that Robin Thicke would be a top contender for Song Of The Summer this year, I’d have to have been pretty hammered to go along with that idea. Don’t get me wrong — Robin Thicke; smooth voice, pretty blue eyes and a completely likeable personality. But let’s face…

Will Usher’s “Scream” Be 2012’s Song Of The Summer?

It isn’t quite summer without Usher, is it?
